An intimate, authentic culinary experience with a famous Florentine Chef! Great for beginners and experienced cooks alike!
The day begins with a trip to a farmers' market in Florence to go shopping with the Chef, picking up the freshest ingredients for your class. Meet the butchers, the bakers, and the farmers selling vegetables from their gardens and learn how to distinguish the highest quality ingredients and taste local and typical products!
Then head to a fascinating farmhouse immersed in the Tuscan countryside to learn recipes and secrets that you will bring home to surprise your friends and family with a true Italian meal! Your menu may slightly vary depending on the season and the fresh ingredients available. Typically, the menu will be: two different types of home-made pasta from scratch (such as pappardelle and ravioli) and a dessert.
The class will end with a delicious lunch that will prove your improved skills in the kitchen, accompanied by tastings of different wines and a final typical Tuscan dessert wine.
At last, you will visit the wine cellar of a small boutique winery to learn about their wine production.
Please note that when the farmers' market is closed (on Sundays and bank holidays) a visit to an olive oil mill with olive oil tasting will be offered instead.
Meeting point will be at a central location. Details will be provided in final documents.
